Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were side by side as they returned to their car following dinner at the Mexican spot Marix in LA yesterday. Jennifer wore a fitted skirt and tank for the date night, which comes after her new SmartWater ads were released last week. Aside from the fresh photos, Jennifer's been lying low since the February release of Wanderlust. She has been busy with real estate, though, and sold her West Village apartments last month just a year after purchasing them. Instead, she and Justin have moved into a Beverly Hills rental while their Bel Air mansion is undergoing renovations. Jennifer bought the $21 million estate in January and is reportedly spending thousands more on fixtures and furniture.
Kristen Stewart hung out on the balcony of her Mexico City hotel with Snow White and the Huntsman costar Sam Claflin on Saturday. She was in town to promote the fairy-tale project at a photocall after doing press with Charlize Theron in London, Berlin, and Madrid. During an interview in the UK, Kristen read Fifty Shades of Grey out loud and cracked up at the racy novel. She also talked about Robert Pattinson's dog, Bear, calling him a "baby" and joking that he's "literally a child." Next up, Kristen will switch gears for her film On the Road, which premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday.
Victoria Beckham wore a dress of her own design to accompany her husband David to the annual Sports Spectacular benefit at LA's Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. The gala raises funds for the Cedars-Sinai Medical Genetics Institute, which researches genetic birth defects. The couple brought their three sons, Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz, along for the event, while baby Harper stayed at home. It was the latest fun outing for the Beckham boys, since earlier in the afternoon, David, Cruz, Romeo, and Brooklyn checked in at the Staples Center to watch the Los Angeles Kings take on the Phoenix Coyotes.
David was honored at the evening event for his work. On the press line, David spoke about his future with soccer. He said, "People always ask me what I want to do when I've finished playing, and they say, 'Do I want to go into management?' To be honest I've never wanted to go into management. I love coaching kids, I love working with kids. They're amazing people. They're amazingly truthful, young people, and that's what I love doing."
The entire Beckham clan is together on the West Coast after a busy period of travel for both David and Victoria. He stopped in Washington DC for an event with the president and first lady to honor the MLS-winning LA Galaxy team. David was then off to Athens and proudly helped transport the Olympic flame to London ahead of the Summer Olympics. Victoria returned for a long tour of Asia on behalf of her namesake collection. Things keep growing for Posh's business — Victoria Beckham will open her first store, possibly in Hong Kong, but more likely in London.
Kristen Stewart is the latest celebrity to read a racy excerpt from E.L. James's Fifty Shades of Grey. See the Twilight star blush over the book in today's PopSugar Rush.

Zuma and Kingston weren't the only kids there — Gwen's No Doubt bassist Tony Kanal brought his young daughter, Coco, too! Gwen and her band are gearing up for the September release of their new album. The first single, however, will be out in July.
Gwen and her husband Gavin Rossdale have both thrown themselves back into music, with him touring the world for the last few months with Bush. The next six weeks will see him do shows closer to home around North America.

The gods were on their side!"
